Inside Portugal’s dinosaur embryo discovery – BBC News

The town of Lourinhã in Central Portugal is often described as a real life ‘Jurassic Park’.

It was put on the map in the 1990s, following the landmark discovery of dinosaur eggs containing embryos on a local beach.

At 150 million-years-old, these eggs are the oldest of their kind ever discovered.

In 2018, more nests were discovered in the area – helping scientists gain new insight into dinosaur embryo development.
